Spain the top holiday destination for Brits

Wednesday, 05 October 2011

Spain has been voted the number one holiday getaway destination for UK families, according to the ABTA – The Travel Association.

The firm's 2011 Consumer Trends Survey revealed to travel insurance customers that Mediterranean countries dominated its top ten rankings.

Spain was in the number one spot, with France, Greece, Italy, Turkey and Cyprus all in the top ten for family-friendly holiday destinations.

Mark Tanzer, chief executive at ABTA, said: "For many years Spain has been our favourite overseas holiday spot. One of the main reasons for this has been the amazing welcome and facilities that Spain and its people offer to families."

The British Insurance Brokers' Association stated that it is imperative for holidaying Brits to take out travel insurance when they go abroad.

Graeme Trudgill, technical and corporate affairs executive at the organisation, added "travel insurance is like your suitcase, you shouldn't go away without it" and said that people should get cover for things like medical bills, flight cancellations and personal injury.
